CPS Energy is spending a whopping $ 290 MILLION to install Radiation Pulsing Meters ("smart" meters) to track your electric usage. The City (we the taxpayers) owns CPS Energy, however, our elected officials (City Council) did NOT get a vote on this expenditure. Additionally, the Opt-Out Fee was never voted on by our City Council. We have invited Stan Mitchell, a Harvard Business School graduate whose entire career was spent advising corporations on financial issues, to illuminate us on what he thinks of the economics of this technology. Click here for more information on "smart/RF" meters.
Jeff Judson of the Heartland Institute will bring us up to date on the Lonestar Rail Project. Jeff was a leader in the effort to stop the Streetcar Initiative, so we are interested to hear what he has to say about this looming project.
Please invite your friends and neighbors to attend. We will have coffee and doughnuts.
We look forward to seeing you on October 24th.

RF Meters have been implicated in fires causing DEATH !
Many families in San Antonio reside in densely populated areas such as apartments or closely built homes. Therefore, they are more likely to be exposed to higher levels of RF (a Class 2B Carcinogen) from "banks" of meters all pulsing constantly. Additionally, there are many older homes with old wiring. We believe it is reasonable for residents to be allowed to keep their analog meter without having to pay "opt-out" fees. Pedernales Electric and Austin Electric, both allow residents to have an analog meter. They do charge for the opt-out, however, we believe that policy is in direct opposition to the Federal Energy Act which proposed OPT-IN technology, not OPT-OUT ! We also believe that with enough citizen involvement across the country, Opt-Out fees will be overturned.
The US is an oligarchy, study concludes .. Click Here
"Researchers concluded that US government policies rarely align with the the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favour special interests and lobbying organisations: "When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it."
